The number of newly detected cases of 156 and case rate of 225 cases per 100,000 population have remained staЫe since the past week. The level of testing has reduced Ьу 30% from the previous week and test positivity increased Ьу 43%.
Four new hospital admissions were registered during the Epi Week 34, which decreased from seven patients the week before. AII four of the patients were admitted due to COVID-19 morbidity.
A total of 245 administered vaccinations were reported during Epi Week 33, of which 38% (93/245) were fourth doses and 22% (55/245) were paediatric vaccinations.
Hospital admissions have started to decline and remain low. Due to changes in testing policy and testing behaviour the reported number of detected cases does not reflect the incidence of COVID-19 in the population. Therefore, whilst testing data will continue to Ье monitored alongside other puЫic health surveillance, reporting
will focus on severe outcomes of COVID-19 hospitalisations and deaths going forwards.
